>> yes i think we proved a code of silence. >> now chicago must pay $850,000 in damages. our top story seen around the country tonight sean lewis is at the federal building. $850,000, a fair judgment in the words of this attorney tonight and while he did a share of the talking after
9:01pm
the verdict was read obrisky herself had one thing to say. i would like to say thank-you to the lawyers and the jury and everybody that supported me. deep gratitude tonight from carolina moments after being awarded $850,000 in her civil case against the city of chicago and the ex cop and the aba take in 2007 a security camera caught a drunk off-duty abata beating carolina and she worked. it also found the city of chicago fostered a code of silence within the c p d to keep incidents like this quiet. we proved a code of silence at every level of the chicago police department from the patrolmen that walked in the door into the 25th district,
9:02pm
into the superintendent's office into i e t rate up to the desk of dick kirby yes we proved it was within the chicago police department. his attorney tonight disappointed in the verdict. i think there is a certain sense that he made this mistake for the world to see and he is going to live watching it over and over again. while attorneys for the city would not comment on camera the city did release the statement reading in part: the only way you're going to see change in the chicago police department is if the mayor dick takesdictates it, no comment from
9:03pm
the mayor's office tonight. the city is also on the hook for her attorneys' fees which rate now are north of $2 million. with the verdict today he offered this one small statement that when this trial began he offered to settle the case with the city for $400,000 at the time the city said, no deal. that is the latest year. >> the devil is money. out of the mayo clinic about facing new pressure today congressman jesse jackson jr. being investigated for possibly misusing campaign cash. jesse jackson jr. has left the mayo clinic but he does remain in minnesota at this
9:04pm
hour and tea is there for an outpatient treatment only there with his parents however his wife is here in the south shore neighborhood, one tonight facing scrutiny herself because the wall street journal is reporting that the feds are after her as well. perhaps putting the squeeze on the congressman's wife to make her case. of course it's incredibly effective, it does not make right in my opinion. this ex gov afraid that his own wife may end up in jail if his own wife did not cooperate with the federal government the wall street journal reports that it's happening to sandy jackson the congressman's wife to. o. >> they did nothing but spread her name in the mud the character down flights of stairs as far as representation is concerned and she did nothing but love her husband public reports say that sandy jackson was complicity in the alleged misuse of the campaign funds and
9:05pm
now she could be in trouble with a lot the allegation is that jesse jackson jr. used campaign cash to buy furniture for their washington d.c. home and of using political money to pay for it watch for his mistress it would appear that the jackson marriages being tested yet again. you really never want to play on somebody's love for somebody else, to make them do something that they otherwise wouldn't do. even though you want their cooperation. it's a powerful tool and the feds are not afraid to use it today that meier shares little about the scandal that is all the talk around town he like others is waiting for the full story. today sandy jackson avoided city hall her husband remains with
9:06pm
his parents in minnesota and as an outpatient only at the mayo clinic. when you are looking at your spouse or people in your family, that seems to be the government's m zero..o. other spouse's significant others connected to political corruption scandals in the past no indictment today and no comment from either in the jackson camp tonight. word that investigators may be branching out to include the congressman's wife. patty and rod blagojevich thanks for coming in. welcome let's talk a little bit about the sudden heat that appears to be coming on mrs.
9:07pm
jackson. why did this happen? my guess in this case is i guess the negotiations was to have been on going fairly well i'm guessing they went into a snag some wear and this gives an opportunity to put a little more pressure on congressman jackson to maybe jump-start these negotiations whatever is holding it up this will give it a new start. talk about your case the pressure was on on dreyfuss how does that affect her? i always say do what you want to me, indict me but as far as going after family and loved ones, it puts you in a very difficult position she was great about it but we talked there were two young children involved so it wasn't just andria and die and i
9:08pm
just could not let it happen i got were for my attorney that seven years in prison the only one who would be doing it was me so it didn't take a lot i wasn't happy the way broderick but you have to protect your loved ones. that was a point where you finally literally used the word uncle. i looked at my attorney and i said tell them they win all gold. i am not going to put her at risk. >> we hear about this every single day if this purview you would handle it differently right? yes this is obviously a tough time for him any time you are under indictment and scrutiny it's very difficult. but i always said it's really a mental game you have to prepare yourself for the worst and deal with this upfront and you have to have the right mindset because this will probably be
9:09pm
tougher for him down the road and you have to be mentally prepared and deal with the best way that you can i'm not sure he's doing that very well at this point. how would you be coaching him right now to handle the media and his constituents. from day one you have to face the music running and hiding in any fashion the reality is, running from the press and denying into hiding is just not the way to do it, face it, step up to the mike, answer everybody's questions it doesn't go away but it does appease the frenzy that is out there and hiding this is no answer at all. former comptroller dixon plans to plead guilty to marta fraud charges the u.s. attorney charged her with siphoning more than $53
